You will fall in love with Bovagh House, a Historic Georgian Manor House set in idyllic countryside surrounded by fields, acres of woodland and a well stocked fishing river. The House is in close proximity to National Trust tourist attractions (e.g Giants Causeway), Bushmills Distillery and world class golfing resort, Royal Portrush Golf Club. Bovagh House is ideal for small groups of friends or families for gatherings, celebrations or a relaxing retreat in the countryside or a gourmet holiday!
Bovagh House was on the Buildings at Risk Register of Northern Ireland. We bought the house in 2010 and embarked on a full restoration and conservation program. Whilst we cannot offer a luxury stay, you will have a unique place for your exclusive use that is seeped in golfing, naval and architectural history. By renting the House, you too will help contribute to its restoration and the preservation of a piece of the built heritage in Northern Ireland. We are excited to also have teamed up with an accomplished private chef who can, subject to availability, be booked to provide you with a gourmet holiday experience! Inquiries strictly subject to availability.
Bovagh House is on a farm. Therefore there may be tractors and animals out in the fields depending on the time of year. The fields are fenced. The farm has 20 acres of woodland. You can enjoy beautiful riverside walks that go round the perimeter of the entire estate.
The house has fishing rights for one rod. We have a 9-foot fly rod for any guests who wish to fish, and we can get some flies – there are some that are best suited to our river. The main fish are salmon and trout. The salmon tend to run up river later in late August and September. (Search for Agivey Anglers Association on line and you’ll find lots more information. It has a map of the river and pools.)
The house is a short distance from several beaches including Mussenden Temple, Magilligan Beach, Portstewart Strand, Castlerock, White Rocks etc.
Inside the house has high ceilings. There are four large reception rooms, including a drawing room, dining room, sitting room, games room and breakfast room.
